The Man Near the Moon

In this episode, Dennis uses his ADHD/Aspergers brain and takes on a potpourri of issues such as President Biden's speech to Congress, the role of the state and the center-right, Sen. Tim Scott's response and the United States as a racist nation, America becoming a post-religious nation and the fate of the mainline Protestant church.  He caps things off with a tribute to the "forgotten astronaut" of Apollo 11, Michael Collins.
